C.   Costs, Benefits, and Effectiveness (Continued)

Distribution of Aid: SSIG data through the 1982-83 program year Indicates
that the average SSIG award has been declining steadily since 1979-80. How-
ever, the increasing State overmatches to the Federal contribution suggest
that total State grant awards may be rising. Data on first-time, full-time
freshmen shown in Table 1 verify that average State grant awards increased
from $708 (1980-81) to $789 (1983-84). SSIG data also suggest a redistri-
bution of awards to recipients with differfiTgfamily incomes. From 1980-81
to 1982-83, SSIG recipients below $6,000 increased from 36.24 percent to 40.86
percent of the total, and those with incomes above $15,000 remained fairly
stable at 30.9 percent and 30.5 percent. Recipients between $6,000 and
$15,000 declined from 32.79 percent to 28.61 percent of the total. Program
data also show a shift in the distribution of Federal funds to students with
differing incomes. (E.3, E.4)

Table 1 also shows the historical pattern of State grant support for first-
time, full-time freshmen. It indicates that grant sizes were increasing
more slowly than educational costs through academic year 1982-83, in that
the ratio of award to cost (third row of each year entry) declined from
academic year 1980-81 to 1982-83. There was a slight increase in the total
ratio for academic year 1983-84.
